Great Clips Celebrates 30th Birthday With Camaro Giveaway

MINNEAPOLIS, July 26, 2012—It may be Great Clips’ 30th birthday, but the Twin Cities-based haircare giant is the one giving away the presents, including a 2012 Camaro. Three lucky people will win a trip to the Great Clips 200 Nationwide Race in Phoenix where the final Camaro winner will be determined. 

To register to win, U.S. residents can text CAMARO to 47328. Canadian residents text CAMARO to 77777 or go to www.greatclips.com  to enter or get more details. The sweepstakes runs now through Aug. 15. Three finalists will be chosen after Aug. 15, and they will win a trip for themselves and a guest to attend the Great Clips 200 Nationwide Race in Phoenix on Nov. 10, 2012. Each finalist will be awarded a key to the Camaro – but only one will have the “Lucky Key” that starts the car.

The Camaro giveaway is one of many planned festivities honoring the founders, corporate staff, franchisees, stylists and customers of the company that forever changed the haircare industry. Great Clips Chairman Ray Barton was one of three local men whose dreams for quick and convenient cuts, along with the hard work of the staff and franchisees, have grown the company into an international icon with more than 3,000 salons. Great Clips, headquartered in Minnesota, celebrates its birthday along with salons in 150 markets across the United States and Canada.

“Thirty years ago, we began our quest to change an industry; today, we are the world’s largest, most recognized and respected salon brand,” says Ray Barton, one of Great Clips’ early leaders and now Chairman of the Board. “We didn’t get here alone. We want to thank the many wonderful and loyal customers, staff, salon owners, managers and stylists for making us the haircare leader we are today.” 

Beginning in August, Great Clips will also be awarding a variety of fun, early-80s retro gifts to its online fans via Facebook,Twitter and EverythingGreat.com.

The gift giving will continue through November when Great Clips will award the Camaro in the Great Clips Camaro Giveaway.
